Asheara Pet in Diablo 4

With the 1.4.2 update, Diablo 4 has given players the opportunity to claim a free Pet by completing a quest. So, here is how you can claim a free pup in Diablo 4.

Vessel of Hatred is around the corner, and Diablo 4 players who preorder will be able to get a variety of new Pets to follow them around Sanctuary. What you may not know, though, is that everyone can claim a free one in-game right now. 

So, here is everything you need to know about the new Pets in Diablo 4 and what you need to do to claim yours.

How to unlock Asheara Pet in Diablo 4

You can unlock the Asheara Pet in Diablo 4 by completing the Faithful Companion quest in Kyovashad. 

The questline starts automatically when you approach a Well-Behaved Dog in the town, and once you have completed it, you will be able to equip your new pet from the Wardrobe.

You can also unlock three additional pets – Alkor the Snow Leopard, Hratli the Canine, and Natalya the Tiger – by preordering Vessel of Hatred, which comes out on October 8, 2024. These will be unlocked before the expansion’s release. 

How to complete Faithful Companion quest in Diablo 4 

To complete the Faithful Companion quest in Diablo 4, you need to approach the Well Behaved Dog in Kyovashad and speak with it.
